said we will raise the debt ceiling for a couple months and, you know, there you go. we haven't gotten any of the real work done? >> it was a short-term punt but i think it was pretty shrewd move by the republicans because you can't default on our debt. if interest rates went up even slightly the amount of interest we would have to pay on our $16 trillion debt would be enormous. you can't do that. it would be shooting ourself in the foot. they tried closing down the government back in the 1990s. that didn't didn't work too well. they're focusing on what is called the sequester, which are across the board spending reductions. that's where i think they will make their stand. we'll have a good robust debate about the level of spending we'll have in this country. the cuts in the sequester are too much for the pentagon for republicans to like. that will be focus rather than having republicans blamed for defaulting on the debt or shutting down the government. that was a shrewd move on their part. melissa: everybody talks about we need to get entitlement spending uncontrol. we need to balance
an extension of the debt ceiling, raised the debt ceiling for the future. and i didn't vote for that. there were no cuts included in that bill. the only cut that we have ever come up with is this 1.2 trillion, because the committee, the special select committee couldn't come up with a spending reductions, were now going to have as part as sequestration. i don't really believe in across the board cuts. i think that's irresponsible. but in the absence of cutting spending someplace to replace those 1.2 -- >> got to take it where you get it. >> it's not the only way we're going to get it. >> it's never a good time to cut spending. it's one of the things i've learned. i guess i saw it years ago when i worked down there. but reporting on this thing night after night, one of the things i learned, senator moran, is it's never a good time to cut spending. so march 1st is an interesting deadline. >> i'm not voting to set the sequester aside unless we cut the 1.2 trillion someplace else. >> good luck on that. senator jerry moran of kansas, thank you very much, sir. we appreciate it. >> thank yo
to be borrowed, and therein lies the necessity of raising the debt ceiling precisely to fund the difference between all that the government wants to spend and the tax revenue that's going to happen. and it's important to note, by the way, that raising this debt ceiling is not about paying for past bills incurred. i know that's repeated around here all the time. it's totally untrue. we have a funding for the appropriations process that expires at the end of march. there is no appropriation that's in place going forward. the debt ceiling increased the authority to borrow more money -- increase, the authority to borrow more money is all about future spending, which is part of the reason why some of us think this is a very sensible moment to try to bring some discipline to that future spending. and what would happen if we don't raise the debt ceiling right away? well, if we don't, we would have to have a 25% cut in all government spending, and that's -- that's pretty massive. that's pretty problematic. now, the administration and some actually go way overboard in the threats that they attach to
that minimizes any disruption in the event that the debt ceil something not raised immediately -- debt ceil something not raised immediate lid upon the expiration of this period. that's what this amendment is about. my amendment is about minimizing the risk the disruption in any event that the debt ceil something not raised at the time that the time expires. what it does is instructs the treasury detect to prioritize three categories of payment. the presiding officer: time is expired. mr. toomey: let me ask for 30 seconds to simply saddam hussein that this amendment -- to simply explain that this amendment would authorize the treasury to rates debt ceiling as necessary to cover those three categories. i would urge my colleagues to support the amendment. thank you. mr. baucus: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from montana. mr. baucus: madam president, i appreciate the intent of the senator from pennsylvania. when you stop and think about this amendment, it reminds us of the movie and the book "hunger games." in "hunger games" you'll recall that children were pitted against
itself locking horns with republicans over the issue of raising the debt ceiling. the amount of money the nation is legally allowed to borrow. >> oh, yeah. when it comes to raising the debt ceiling, the president is having a hard time getting it up. >> brian williams does such a good job slow jamming. that's going to wrap things up for me today. i'm going to see you tomorrow, 11:00 a.m. eastern. joining us richard bloomen thaul and debbie wasserman schultz and david ciciline and mayor greg stanton of phoenix. you should have seen the way it was spelled in my prompter. you should have seen it, alex. you can't. you know? they try to make things easier for me, and then i just mess it up. now with alex wagner coming up next. don't go anywhere. yes she is, yes she is.

not raising the debt ceiling. ultimately, we have to do that. and the second as we have to get our long-term fiscal house in order. that means we have to get the entitlement programs under control, achieving two goals. one, the reform is necessary to make sure they achieve the results we're heading which is protecting at risk populations while spending money so we can afford to spend, and no more. that are simple entitlement reforms straightforward. they have been well-vetted that this congress should adopt i believe fairly quickly. there may be legislatively complex, and these are the kind of reforms received my partisan support in the past. commonsense thing. it's frustrating in fact that we don't taken more seriously and move on them because they have profound impacts, where the problem really is. yes, we have a series problem with a trillion dollars budget deficit today but really largess that is the problem is dwarfed by our long run fiscal empowerment program. we know some of the basis reform, bipartisan reforms that can be enacted that will go a long way to getting medicare and s
raising the debt ceiling at indicating that there will be steep cuts said. what is the chance of that? >> well, i hope the is right, but i fear he is wrong. i think that the current mood of the country is more sympathetic to the president and the democrats' perspective, which is that we don't really have a serious spending problem. we have a minor spending problem we can do with a little bit. we can raise taxes on high-income households a little bit more and we don't have to make fundamental cuts in entitlements. i think that's wrong. i think we have to make substantial cuts in entitlements. we should make substantial cuts in many other components of expenditure as well, defense and nondefense in that trying to address our long term fiscal situation with higher taxes is is going to destroy the economy. gerri: democrats are beating the drum on this already. anyone you listen to from that side of the house is really talking about higher taxes. republicans and conservatives in general like to talk about the power of economic growth. could robust growth that a lot of people think they're
the debt ceiling until the middle of may. senate democrats say they will pass the bill soon and the white house says president obama will not veto it. the debt ceiling is the limit on how much the feds can borrow. republican leaders were refusing to raise it without an equal amount of spending cuts. but the bill they just passed has a new ultimatum for the house and the senate. no budget, no pay. carl cameron in the d.c. newsroom tonight. how is this supposed to break the gridlock? >> hey, shep. it's basically a two-part deal. the first says by april 15th, both the house and the senate each have to pass a budget that balances in 10 years. should either chamber fail then its members paychecks can't be delayed. they can't stop it constitutionally they have to get paid. the other part suspends enforcement of the federal debt limit until may 19th, at which point it will increase retroactively without any offset in spending cuts. here is how speaker john boehner summed it up today. >> you know, the premise here is pretty simple. it says that there should be no long-term increase in the debt li
the debt ceiling until may. law americas won't get paid if they fail to pass a budget. >> american families have to do a budget. they understand you can't continue to spend money you don't have. we are committed to doing a budget on the house side that will balance over the neck ten years as time for the senate and president to show the american people how they are willing to balance a budget ore the next ten years. >> the democratic controlled senate is expect to do approve the debt bill. it has not pass add budget in four years. >> phil mickelson wasn't talking about his guolf game. he was teeing off over another apology about his tax comments. >> i have made some dumb, dumb mistakes and obviously talking about this stuff is one of them. my apology is for talking about it publicly. i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change. >> mickelson hinted earlier this week he may leave california or the united states because of how much he's paying in taxes. california has a new tax rate of 13.3 percent. that is your 5@5:00. >> tiger woods mo
a deal on this. there will be a lot of pressure to do that. republicans agreed to raise the debt ceiling. that took away a little bit of their leverage going into negotiations at the end of february. here comes paul ryan. where has he been? he is making this line in the sand now. i think the white house is concerned because this could hurt the economy going forward if we go through these deep cuts and right now the white house is saying we need to keep the economy moving. we have to keep all eyes on that and continue to have growth and jobs. there is concern for the white house. >> ryan took one of his famous charts on "meet the press." you can tell immediately what he thinks the problem is, more spending cuts are needed. paul ryan says increasing revenue is off the table for now. the gop, the tax hikes during the fiscal cliff stuff. do they do it again? >> he was also asked and side stepped whether or not you could close loopholes. it is another way to get revenue. that is what david gregory asked him. he had a nonresponse response to that. there are other ways to get revenue than acros
, i don't know how you can say spending's not a problem, we don't need to raise the debt ceiling. >> you are right. if we have to borrow money to keep the lights on. the goal is to push the congress to put our country on a path to a balanced budget. the president calls that radical. but over a 10-year period, if we don't stop spending more than we are breaking in, we are going to bankrupt our country. >> nice to see you. >> do you think washington has a spending problem or not? tell us what you think, right now on gretawire.com. straight ahead, robert menendez denying allegations that he engaged with prostitutes after an fbi fleyed florida. the most unpopular part of obamacare, the individual mandate. we found out who is going to have to pay and how much, all decided by bureaucrats that we didn't elect. that controversy, coming up. plus, which celebrity couple is back together? and the reunion is setting twitter on fire. start guessing, the answer, coming up.

. >> greta: if spending is not a problem, they then why raise the debt ceiling? >> the goal now of the whole conservative movement is push congress to put our country on a path to a balanced budget. president calls that radical. over ten-year period, if we don't stop spending we're going to bankrupt our country. >> greta: do you think washington has a spending problem or not? go to to greta wire.com. menendez denying allegations that he engaged with prostitutes after a raid in florida. latest next. also, and most unpopular part of obamacare. individual mandate. who is going to have to pay and how much. all that decided by bureaucrats. that controversy coming up. and which couple is back together? and what is set twitter on fire. the scenes coming up. c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. using robotics and mobile technology, verizon innovators have made it possible for teachers to teach, and
. and house nearly three months to raise the debt ceiling. >> look, i understand why they want to move the initiative forward and i think there is some strategicty to the way they're doing it it and i believe the second part the of it it, congress shouldn't get paid unless a budget is passed. no one wants to miss a paycheck certainly, but i think it's a very valid point and i think that it's not unfair to say to the people if you're not going to do your job, you shouldn't get paid. >> greta: and we keep getting these, like goal posts and mile posts and three more months. >> absolutely. >> greta: six more months and another excuse-- >> in fairness, i think it's the house. if they believed they could pass a bill out of house that not only dealt with the debt limit, but with our debt problem and passed out of the senate and signed by the president they would do it in a heartbeat. that's not what they're facing. they want facing a president that wants unconditional limits and the senate hasn't passed a budget in days. i think they're trying to make the best of a bad situation. absolutely w

to increase the debt ceiling every time it's reached, refuse to raise it at some point and don't know? you can see 86% are saying that congress will raise the debt ceiling every time it's reached this year, when i think about some of the reasons why stocks have gotten higher because i think that thread along with the fiscal cliff has come out of the market and that there's overwhelming sentiment that coss i solve the get problem. we asked wall street to grade our treasury secretary going out and one coming in. you can see a pretty strong sentiment that he was a seed secretary with a 2.2. jack lew, the sentiment there. 2.0. one more thing on the deficit i just want to say and maybe this is worthy of discussion here. i think this is a sign that things have improved, at these economists and guys on wall street are saying we should solve the deficit and do it now. i think if things were as bad as they were say the last couple years there might be less sense that we urgently need to fix the deficit problem. mike england from action economics said if we don't solve it now we'll get to the next cycle

voted against raising the debt ceiling, he said he was doing up because the national debt was outrageous a train dollars. i want to quote the president because he clarified for effect $8 trillion. under president about our national debt is over $16 trillion climbing, larger than our entire economy and he's not worried at all. indeed, he caused the progress. remember his campaign slogan? have got news for the president. if washington's guidance going forward, america's economy is going backwards. instead of managing government, it's time to address how we can make america to please her she can once again become the land of upper charity, a place of opportunity. we should put all of our eggs in that basket conservatives and republicans. research any folks in washington d.c. to devote themselves from taking america so for the lechery cannot give back. we must do all we can to stop what is rapidly becoming the bankrupting of our federal government. we as conservatives must dedicate energy and efforts to bring america, to showing the younger generation south american in the future. if more go
